Ball Python Morph: Black Pewter



Genetics:

Designer Combination
Pastel (Co-Dominant)
Black Pastel (Co-Dominant)

Proven by:

Gulf Coast Reptiles (2002)

The Black Pewter Ball Python is a designer morph, as it was created by man. This is a cross between a Black Pastel, and a Pastel (often known as a Jungle Pastel.)

A Pewter is a near silver and black hatchling. As they grow, their coloring is a very pale tan/grey base with extreme fading dorsally and laterally with a clear white belly

Pewters can also be made by crossing a Pastel with a Cinnamon Pastel, but to save confusion, we will refer to that as a Cinnamon Pewter.

There have been several different imported animals that are the original Black Pastels, imported to various breeders.  Each of these, with it’s offspring, have established a different “line” of black pastel.  Each line tends to have some slightly different characteristics and subtleties. The various lines of Black Pastel I am aware of, are:

  • NERD
  • Gulf Coast Reptiles
  • Ian G. (Outback Reptiles)
  • Graziani
  • Gary Liesen
  • VPI
  • Tom Barnhart
